Mickey Hess thinks The Bugging Watch is not terrible. Mickey Hess’ 15th round of Let’s Get Blurbing! over at The Rumpus includes The Bugging Watch & Other Exhibits:
“In this deeply understandable and boundlessly groundbreaking book, Kim – a dynamic, tumultuous genius – wrestles with a heartwrenching tennis-court addition. Coolly unhappy and remarkably sexual, this human poet is driven by optimistic people to swimming pools. Makes our old literary heroes seem snobbish and devoid of a personal life.”Also blurbed are Shya Scanlon’s Forecast & Stan Mir’s Song & Glass. Read more here.
Bill Allegrezza also thinks The Bugging Watch is not terrible. Bill Allegrezza’s Daily Glance includes The Bugging Watch:
“The Bugging Watch & Other Exhibits reads like a dark fairy tale, one in which things never totally become clear. The individual prose poems often are somewhat clear, but they hint at a larger story, one that I could not completely make out. Bits and pieces are easy to see. For example, the main characters are in some sort of relationship. Really, the characters seem like they are out of some dark fairy world. I kept waiting to flip the page and see an Edward Gorey illustration.”
